BBC Emma tie-in edition

File this under "just spotted on Amazon". Here is the cover of the new tie-in edition of Emma by Jane Austen. The book is due for publication on 17 September 2009 so I assume the new BBC adaptation will be shown not too long after that date.

Rebecca Hall in Total Film

Just bought the new issue (October 2009) of Total Film today and was pleased to discover a three page article on Rebecca Hall inside. As I mentioned yesterday her new movie The Picture of Dorian Gray is coming out soon. Enjoy the scans!

Late August Trivia

I thought I would do an update covering all the random trivia that I don't want to cover individually.

Summer television is usually a bit rubbish as there is rarely anything new on. However the BBC broke this trend to give us the six-part Desperate Romantics which ended last night. At first I wasn't too sure if I would be interested in the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood but the show turned out to be good fun and I quite enjoyed it's irreverence.

Special mention must be made of Amy Manson who played the tragic Lizzie Siddal and Jennie Jacques who played Annie Miller. I had never seen either of those actresses before and I was completely won over by them.

It looks like the DVD will be out next month.

By the way, there are high quality promo photos at

Wuthering Heights finally crawls onto TV here after what has become the normal ITV delay. The new issue of the TV Times does the requisite swooning over Tom Hardy and proclaims the show a "staggering success".

Ruth Wilson will be back on the BBC in Small Island which I have mentioned before once or twice. I believe it will be on soon.

I went to see GI Joe in the cinema, mainly because Rachel Nichols is in it. When I got there the showing was canceled for technical reasons. I've not got around to going again. Not much of an anecdote but it give me an excuse to include a photo of Rachel as Scarlett.

A new move of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray is imminent and Penguin have put out a new edition of the novel with the movie art. I mention it because Rebecca Hall is on the cover. If you look closely you can just make her out.

Finally I have got to mention the Star Trek DVD on the German Amazon site. It comes in a box shaped as the USS Enterprise! You open up the saucer section to get at the disks! How cool is that!

Diane Kruger in French Elle magazine

Yet another Kruger find for my collection.

Earlier this week I spotted a single copy of French Elle in a newsagents with Diane on the cover so I thought "mais oui!"

Here's a quick scan of the cover. Inside are 20 pages of Kruger goodness.

Amelia Warner photos

Imen kindly sent in the following Amelia Warner pics taken by Tania Nyberg.
They are new to me. And I like one enough to use it for a new logo image for the Amelia page.

And yet another Diane Kruger magazine is added to my collection. Today it is the turn of the Sunday Express S Magazine to feature her. Here is my scan of the cover.

So what is Ridley Scott directing next?

OK, I'm confused. A while back it was reported that Ridley Scott was returning to SF and would direct a movie based on Joe Haldeman's The Forever War.

The book deals with an interstellar war from the point of view of one of the Earth soldiers. Due to the effect of time dilation many years pass between each battle and by the time the soldiers make it back to Earth they find 1000s of years have passed and human society has changed dramatically.

Fair enough. I'll look forward to that. Then a few weeks ago it was reported that he would be directing a prequel to his original Alien. Great! I love the original and am glad the next movie is in his capable hands. No more AVP please, thank you very much.

Now today you can add to the list Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. (Plus if you look at the IMDB you can see many more projects under his name.)

I guess time will tell...

Lucy Liemann in Hotel Babylon tonight

Just a quick alert. Lucy Liemann will be in tonight's episode of Hotel Babylon on BBC1. I believe she is playing a newspaper reporter.

Diane Kruger in Tatler

Just made another Diane Kruger discovery this morning - she's also on the cover of September's Tatler magazine.

I made a scan of the cover and later I went back and made the effort to scan the inside pages.

Enjoy the Kruger goodness!

Diane Kruger in September 2009 InStyle UK

And another Diane Kruger discovery follows quicky from the last one. It turns out that she is featured on the cover of the September 2009 issue of InStyle Magazine in the UK.

Manly man that I am I will be venturing out later to look for a copy.

Diane Kruger in Sunday Times magazine tomorrow

Just saw that Diane Kruger will be featured on the cover of tomorrow's Sunday Times magazine in the UK. I have a lot of time for Diane so I will be looking forward to that. If there are any nice photos I might attempt scans.
